Laser liposuction using Smartlipo™is a minimally invasive micro laser lipolysis used for facial and body contouring in the Atlanta area. It uses laser energy to literally melt way unwanted fat almost anywhere in the body. The most common areas we use laser liposuction are the tummy area, love handles, thighs (saddle bags), and arms. Smartlipo™ is FDA approved for removal of localized unwanted fat that has not responded to good diet and exercise. Laser liposuction is one the best liposuction techniques available in the Atlanta area for body sculpting in both men and women. If you are looking for an experienced liposuction doctor, well trained in plastic cosmetic procedures, we are your one stop shop.

HOW IS SMARTLIPO™ PERFORMED
Smartlipo™ is an outpatient procedure performed in the office or ambulatory surgery center. During the procedure, laser fiber is introduced through a cannula. The cannula is then inserted in the fat pockets through micro incisions (1 to 2 mm) in the skin. The laser fiber is then moved in a “back and forth” motion. The laser’s aiming beam can be visualized through the skin, allowing Dr. Okoro to identify the treatment area. The laser disrupts the fat cells by heating and shattering the fat cell membrane. The melted fat is then gently removed using micro (small) cannula. The laser also coagulates the blood vessels, resulting in less bleeding, bruising, trauma as well as less down time. The laser energy produces heat and tissue coagulation which promotes tissue tightening. Many people have noticed skin tightening after laser lipolysis. The procedure is safe with minimal side effects.
